If you regularly read and believe the blind items, then I’m sure you’re still on the floor and numb with potent shock after reading this surprising and stunning news. Nobody saw it coming. “Not even she saw it coming, but she did feel it coming….” – John Mayer and Drake, etc…
Giada De Laurentiis announced on Facebook last night that she and her husband of 11 years, Todd Thompson, have been separated for months and I guess that time apart convinced them that they shouldn’t be married to each other’s asses anymore. It happens. Sometimes when you get a taste of that single life, you don’t want to stop tasting it. The supposed Blow Job Queen of the Blind Items spit this out about the end of her marriage:
After an amicable separation since July, Todd and I have decided to end our marriage. Although our decision to separate comes with a great deal of sadness, our focus on the future and overwhelming desire for our family’s happiness has given us the strength to move forward on separate, yet always connected paths. Todd and I share a beautiful daughter and a lifetime of great memories that we both treasure more than anything. We are so thankful for our friends and family, and really appreciate the support in this time of change.
Neither Giada or Todd have filed for divorce yet. But I’m sure if he files, he’ll write, “Because if I have to listen to her pronounce prosciutto as ‘PRO-SHOO-TOE’ one more fucking time,” next to “reason for divorce.”
I skimmed through the comments under Giada’s break-up announcement on FB and of course some people told her to stick it out and work through it, because marriage is sacred and they should stay married for the sake of their 6-year-old daughter Jade. Blah blah blah. Whatever. Giada and Todd were married for 11 years and that’s at least 24 lifetimes in celebrity years. Also, it’s been rumored that Giada boned John Mayer (she denied it), so it probably killed the romance when Todd wrapped his face with antibiotics-covered Saran Wrap every time she asked for a kiss.
